Course Overview

Learning to throw clay on the potter’s wheel is a skill that requires focus and persistence, so a two-day intensive workshop is an excellent way to begin this exciting journey!

Tania Rollond provides demonstrations of all the basic skills including how to centre the clay, lift, shape and trim the form. She encourages you to develop wheel-forming techniques and build confidence with guided practices and one-to-one tuition.

All clay is provided, and selected pieces will be bisque fired in the NAS kilns after the workshop, and we will notify you when they are ready for pick up. Glazing courses are available in other short courses programs.

*Short courses and weekend workshops are open to students of ages 16 years and over. For students under 16 years of age there are School Holiday Workshops, Art Club and other youth art programs.
